About the team
Product Designers are highly collaborative roles at GitLab - you're part of the Product Design org, you report into a Product Design Manager, but work to embed yourself into the feature team that you're working on. You will become an expert in this area, and eventually the broader GitLab product.
Secrets Management: This category is a key product investment area for GitLab. The team’s current focus is to deliver a GitLab-first functionality that can connect to 3rd party application secrets so that teams can safely deploy software. This year’s focus is to provide advanced security and compliance within GitLab. Next to that, we’re working to: Improve the user experience for CI variables settings; Prototype a native secrets manager to better understand how our customers are using secrets to secure workflows; Validate technical and user constraints to the GitLab-native secrets manager experience.
Build Artifacts: This category covers the experiences related to the display of artifact data. The team plans to release UI functionality allowing the bulk delete of build artifacts through the Artifacts page. There are no additional planned features for Build Artifacts in FY24 (2023-02 to 2024-01).
